"I think this is extremely premature," said SAG 1st vice president Anne-Marie Johnson. "We're getting very close to beginning the process of bargaining one of the most lucrative contracts in this industry. This is the time to prove our united strength—if there is any—to provide the strongest contracts our actor members can possibly have."
